The German cultural metropolis of Leipzig is starting 2017 with top-class exhibitions. Europe's best airline, Turkish Airlines, flies fives times a week from Istanbul to Leipzig/Halle. Following on from the successful panorama "Great Barrier Reef", from 28 January 2017, Leipzig Panometer will take its visitors on another journey into the underwater world: the 360° panorama TITANIC deals with probably the biggest shipwreck of all time and shows the ocean giant now - 105 years after the disaster - on the floor of the Atlantic. The celebrated panorama artist Yadegar Asisi not only deals with the sinking of the luxury liner, but also the age-old issue of mankind's attempts to control nature. http://www.asisi.de The Museum of Fine Arts is experiencing a real colour storm with its special exhibition "Nolde and the Bridge" from 12 February to 18 June 2017. The young "Bridge" group of artists includes some of the most important exponents of expressionism and its members were fascinated by the works of the exceptional painter Emil Nolde. An almost two-year collaboration with Nolde, who was almost a generation older, starting in 1906, saw the introduction of modern art into Germany. For the first time, the Leipzig Museum is displaying this exciting chapter of German art history with an exhibition of 150 works including paintings, drawings and graphic prints. http://www.mdbk.de Contemporary art enthusiasts should definitely visit the Spinnerei in Leipzig. The walls of what was once the largest cotton mill in continental Europe now house eleven leading galleries and more than 100 studios. Three times a year - on 14 January, 29/30 April and 15/16 September 2017 - the Spinnerei invites visitors on a grand tour (http://www.spinnerei.de). From there is it worth taking a detour to the newly opened Kunstkraftwerk: For the German première of the installation "Hundertwasser Experience", the international artist group "Immersive Art Factory" led by the Italian artist Gianfranco Iannuzzi has turned the rooms of the former power station in the west of Leipzig into a vibrant, colourful and entrancing immersive Hundertwasser world. Up to 24 August 2017, visitors can literally immerse themselves in the works of the painter and architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser thanks to large-scale video installations. http://www.kunstkraftwerk-leipzig.com 2017 is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther posting his theses on the church door. Leipzig is dedicating an extensive programme of events to this major Anniversary of the Reformation. The Saxon publishing city, and largest city in the Lutheran region of Central Germany, contributed significantly to the dissemination of Martin Luther's writings, and the Leipzig Debate in 1519 sealed Luther's break with the Catholic Church. A dozen special exhibitions at museums in Leipzig, including the Museum of Local History, the Museum of the Printing Arts, and the Museum of Fine Arts, illuminate the work of the reformer in Leipzig and the Leipzig region. Various events, themed tours, such as "Luther and Bach", and the "Kirchentag on the Way" church congress (25-28.5.2017) bring history to life in Leipzig.

Marvel's X-Men film universe has been built over the last 16 years across two different franchises. We've seen different actors play the same characters (sometimes even in the same movie), but there's one character we've seen plenty of but still know little about. No, not Colossus, but the home for gifted youngsters known as the X-Mansion. Despite all the fights, invasions, and mutant power classes, it'd be nice to just wander around the place. Now, ahead of the May 19 arrival of X-Men: Apocalypse, 20th Century Fox teamed with Coldwell Banker real estate to do just that. In the latest commercial partnership to preview brief glimpses of upcoming superhero blockbusters—remember when Jeep went to Gotham, Bruce Wayne flew Turkish Airlines, Audi got pounced by Black Panther, or the X-Men had Wi-Fi troubles?—the real estate brand has been granted the right to run the listing for the $75 million fictional property. The listing includes a description of the 24-plus bedroom estate, that features an automated, state-of-the-art training facility, fully retractable basketball court, and underground parking—for your Blackbird jet. Using Coldwell Banker's "Seller Story" feature, the X-Mansion listing also includes a history and memory of the home written by one of the film’s screenwriters. Beyond the listing, the campaign—created with agency Siltanen & Partners—includes two ads, a behind-the-scenes video filmed on set about the role the X-Mansion and specific rooms have in the film. It also has interviews with actors, director Bryan Singer, as well as the film’s production designer and supervising art director, talking about putting the X in the the X-Mansion. Coldwell Banker chief marketing officer Sean Blankenship says the partnership came about when he got a call from 20th Century Fox. "When we heard from them, we were intrigued, obviously it's a great franchise that has a lot of excitement around it, but it was definitely outside the box for us," says Blankenship. "But once we looked closer, we saw that a lot of the film revolves around the X-Mansion, so if felt really true to our brand to have some fun with that." Even though this campaign involves a blockbuster film and mutants, for Blankenship it's consistent with the tone and approach the brand has established in its marketing partnerships over the last few years. In 2014, the brand created a video series going inside the homes of Major League baseball stars and talking to them about what home means to them. Last year, a campaign with Adopt-a-Pet.com pledged to find homes for 20,000 dogs in 2015. "We've carved out a great core message for the brand, which has to do with the emotional connection to the home, as opposed to some of the much more rational aspects of the industry," says Blankenship. "The one thing we were really focused on, is trying to connect with and understand the next generation of buyers and sellers in real estate, and I think this will go a long way in doing that." Brands and movies working together is nothing new, and Blankenship says that the increasingly elaborate examples—read: Audi and Captain America: Civil War—have come from a common awareness that in a very fragmented and cluttered media world, brands are looking at ways to collaborate to break through more effectively. "Certainly we've seen studios and movies collaborate before. You couldn't go anywhere last year without seeing BB-8," says Blankenship. "But we were looking for something a bit deeper." In deciding whether to get involved or not, Blankenship and his team had to ask themselves a few key questions. "You need an internal constitution that stays true to the brand," he says. "You may be excited about something on a personal level and think it's really cool, but is it something that really aligns with the brand, do we have a quality partner to work with here? To that point, is this a partnership or just someone who wants us to advertise? That's a big one for us. Once we get past that, the next question is, how is this going to benefit our brokers and agents? Is this something they can get behind and activate on a local level? At the end of the day we want to grow our franchise, and want our business to grow, so we want to make sure we're doing something with a broad appeal that will have a positive effect on our business."

In these dark days for American democracy, some liberals are finding solace in the thought that bad as Trumpism might be, it cannot actually govern. Chaos reigns in the White House; the president himself clearly prefers campaigning and brawling to administration; and the Bannons and the Millers have so far exhibited what one observer has nicely called the “incompetence of evil.” These impressions fit neatly into a larger picture according to which populists are simply incapable of governing: Their policy ideas are supposedly so simplistic that they will immediately fail in practice; more important still, populism is always about protest, and, once in power, populist parties and movements realize that they cannot protest against themselves. These are comforting thoughts — but they are also naive. The world has seen plenty of populists take their countries in an authoritarian direction — think of Hugo Chávez, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, or Viktor Orban — and we all should have learned by now that populism in power is by no means a contradiction in terms. All these populist actors provoked serious opposition; all proved far more resilient than those initial impressions suggested. And the governing style of the Trump administration — if one can call it that — exhibits important similarities with the most successful ruling populists. Populists claim that they and only they represent the people or what populists frequently call the “real people” or the “silent majority.” Donald Trump brought out this logic almost textbook-style in his inauguration speech on Jan. 20, when he claimed that power had at last been given back to the people. In other words, if Trump rules, the people rule — it’s as simple as that. By definition, then, whoever opposes Trump prevents the will of the people from being implemented — and thereby also reveals themselves as an anti-democratic elitist. Thus, any institution critical of the populist (let alone one thwarting the populist’s will) can be attacked in the name of democracy. It is hence not surprising that Trump has maligned a judiciary that failed to go along with his “travel ban,” while media critical of the president are denounced as the “enemy of the American people.” Apart from attacks on independent institutions such as courts and a free press, populists immediately try to politicize all aspects of state administration. Of course, in many countries political appointees are perfectly legitimate and in fact expected to enable the implementation of a particular political mandate. That is different, however, from attempts to destroy any neutral civil service with its own rules and professional ethics — which we have witnessed in Turkey, Hungary, and, most recently, Poland. When civil servants do their job in ways that do not please populist rulers, they are accused of “betrayal” — just as Trump did with acting Attorney General Sally Yates last month. To be sure, Yates was a political appointee effectively on her way out, yet the way she was maligned as “weak on illegal immigration” and dismissed on account of what turned out to be a correct professional legal assessment shows that Trump will not have anything approaching a normal relationship with the bureaucracy. Populists will always tell their followers that all politicians try to take possession of the bureaucracy — hence the need to remove all who worked for their predecessors — but they are the only ones who do it truly for the people. After all, only the populists authentically represent the people, and it is only proper that the people appropriate the state for their proper purposes. Populists also engage in what political scientists call “mass clientelism”: They give benefits and bureaucratic favors exclusively to their supporters. To be sure, many governing parties seek to reward their followers. The difference is that, as with the politicization of the bureaucracy, the populists can do this much more openly with recourse to what in their eyes is a moral argument — after all, when they claim to be the only representatives of the “real people,” they always imply that whoever does not follow them is by definition not part of the real people. As Trump put it at a campaign rally last year: “The only important thing is the unification of the people — because the other people don’t mean anything.” In other words: Some people, even if they happen to be American citizens, simply won’t count. And it is only proper that the government looks exclusively after the “real people.” What’s more, populists can form groups that conform to their image of the ideal people — and that are loyal to the regime. In Venezuela, Chávez created his Boliburguesía, which did very well indeed out of the Bolivarian revolution. Erdogan continues to enjoy the unshakeable support of an Anatolian middle class that emerged with the economic boom under his rule (and that also embodies the image of the ideal, devout Turk, as opposed to Westernized, secular elites and to minorities such as the Kurds). Hungary’s Fidesz has built up a new group that conforms to Orban’s vision of a “Christian national” culture, combining economic success, family values (having children brings many benefits), and religious devotion. For some observers, populists cannot be all that bad and exclusionary in their approach, because these leaders so frequently talk about “unifying the people.” After the election, Trump tweeted messages such as “We will unite and we will win, win, win!” In his inauguration speech, he again invoked a “united” and “unstoppable” America, and in a press conference last week he ruminated at length about ending divisions in U.S. society. But, in general, democracies are not in need of “unification.” As anyone remotely familiar with James Madison and the other founders will recall, democracy is about civilized, institutionally contained conflict, where political opponents respect each other as legitimate (the very thing populists fail to do). When populists say “unification,” it is always unification on the populists’ terms — or else one excludes oneself from the “real people” as defined by the populists. Populist talk of ending divisions is the very opposite of a message that different interests and identities in a democracy will be respected. When there is protest against governing populists, it becomes supremely important to delegitimize dissent — even if it poses no real threat to the populists’ power. After all, by definition it cannot be true that the people themselves are turning against their one and only authentic representative. Hence populists have followed a strategy pioneered by Vladimir Putin: They claim that what looks like genuine civil society protest is in fact steered from the outside. Putin held that all the “color revolutions” in Russia had been engineered by the West; the Turkish government, exhibiting an unusual degree of creativity with its conspiracy theories, concocted a story that the Gezi Park protests were the doing of Lufthansa (which was supposedly afraid of increased competition from Turkish Airlines); and, most recently, Orban has vowed to go after foreign agents disguising themselves as Hungarian NGOs. Trump has attacked “professional anarchists, thugs and paid protesters” — clearly all un-American figures who by definition are opposed to real Americans who also by definition want to make America great again. Populists thrive on conflict; for them, polarization and facing protests are not problems but in fact conditions for maintaining and, if possible, increasing their own power. To be sure, they did not invent culture wars in Turkey, Hungary, or Poland — but they did everything they could to exacerbate them. Populists relish protests, as long as protesters can be presented as an alien minority bent on betraying the homeland — which then also goes to prove to the populists’ supporters that they are the majority or indeed the “real people” as such. None of this is to say that protesters in the United States should stay home — far from it. Culture wars — let alone flagrant rights violations — that end up alienating a mobilized majority will also be a problem for populists, no matter how committed their own base. The point is that liberals should not be complacent in thinking that chaos and opposition on the street will necessarily be sufficient to delegitimize populists in power. They should also recognize that there is a method to the madness of Trump’s attacks on judges and the media; scapegoats are being put in place for when policies cannot be implemented or go horribly wrong. The critics of the likes of Erdogan and Orban have had to learn the hard way that populists can entrench themselves in power — and find numerous ways of convincing their supporters that their authoritarian ways are in fact perfectly democratic.
